Chane is a JXNMS artist working in mixed media and also creates graphic designs that can be found through his shop in Fondren called Swell-o-phonic. He was the creator of The Wonder Lab in Fondren which housed up and coming local artists. Chane was also the co-Founder of Icon Gallery in Fondren in the early 2000’s
Chane owns Dwello Furnitura - a furniture design project (circa 2001) which offers locally sourced wood shaped and formed to become modern styled benches, coffee tables, etc. Each piece offers abstract qualities that carry over from his tee shirt designing and painting rituals.
Currently, Chane creates all of his abstract pieces outdoors while in search of a more permanent studio space. His art has only begun to surface within the last year as he chose to remain underground for the past 3 years under the alias of MONSTER 19.
He simply wanted to see if the art itself would gain traction rather than being aided by a person’s name. With the exception of an initial short-termed, but unfavorable gallery experience, his art has never formally been focused into the public eye or promoted online until now. All pieces sold beforehand were solely by the power of word-of-mouth as collectors began to take notice of his unusual sense of blending materials and essentially painting with words aided by in-depth textures and layers. His original works and commissions have quietly streamed out of hiding to local collectors in Jackson, Madison and Yazoo City, as well as to New York, Boston, Connecticut, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Atlanta. Chane is currently seeking this new career direction professionally to add to his resume of design ventures over the past 34+ years. His work is now available at Pacesetter Gallery
His mantra - LIVE FAST, DREAM FOREVER seems to be the fuel for this recently uncovered passion.
Chane is the father of 7 and Mercer - his best creatives ever.
